Label 5 18 year Whisky
The Label 5 is a blended Scotch whisky brand, which is owned by French company La Martiniquaise.
Region: Elgin, Scotland
Nose: The nose presents with dry Spanish cedar, vanilla, cocoa and dark chocolate, roast pumpkin, poppy seeds, honeycomb and creamy undertones with a floral hue.
Palate: On the palate the whisky is very smooth, with the immediate woody taste of sawdust morphing into earthy hazelnuts, pumpkin seeds, vanilla, pumpkin baklava and some mild fruit with a smoky haze.
Finish: The finish continues with this woody theme, offering lingering dark chocolate cherry liqueur and toasted coconut as the tip of the tongue dries but curiously a creamy film remains on the centre of the tongue.
